Challenge is gonna look something like this, details in the second comment below.

 

  1. Eat your damn vegetables already
  2. Stop eating all the calories

Saving this spot for the deets, work in progress

 

1. Eat your damn vegetables already

 

Goal is to eat 2.5 cups of vegetables per day. Last challenge was to eat 1 cup at two meals per day, 2 cups total. When I focused on it, it was pretty easy. This flagged a bit on weekends and the last week of the challenge. I was going to aim for 3 cups, but lets do 2.5 cups to be more realistic. This is the opposite of whatever the Night's Watch would eat on the Wall. If I'm eat a restaurant I should think to myself, "What wouldn't Sam eat?" and order that. 

 

2. Stop Eating all the Calories

 

This is going to take a 3 part effort on my part.
A) Track my food honestly. I.E. If I eat 2 tb of peanut butter, write down 2 tb of peanut butter, not 1 tb and hope for the best and cross my fingers that my body doesn't know the difference. 

B ) When feasible, put food in my tracker before I put it in my mouth. This is really important at restaurants and friends/family gatherings where food is in abundance. 

C) Eat under 1800 calories on a normal day, Eat under 2000 calories on a workout day. It's a small margin, but this goes back to being as honest as humanly possible. I'm not a calorie computing machine, but I can try my best. 

 

Every time I am over 2000 calories I have to pay $15 on my credit card, this comes from my weekly spending money. !!!!

 

3. Find the Balance, Lift & Stuff

...compounding goals from last two challenges

 

Lift things (Feb Challenge). Continue workout 4x week, minimum 4 lifts per workout with 2 being primary lifts (Squat, Deads, OHP, Bench, Row). 
Glutes/abs (March Challenge), I need to really be doing these 2x week. I'm going to switch to doing these on my non-gym days @ home. Plus if I get used to doing these at home I won't forget to do them. Instead of saying to myself at the end of a gym session "I'll do these tomorrow at home" and then forgetting, I'll actually do them. 

Cardio, UGH. (NEW) I really wouldn't care about this except for health reasons. When I'm at the gym, do 30-40 minutes of cardio. I typically do 10 min as a warm up, 20-25 min after lifting. 

Be more flexible than Samwell Tarly. (NEW) End every gym or glute/ab session with 5-10 minutes of stretches. This must include hamstring, calf, ankle, my trouble spots. 

That seems like a lot, but it's just putting in writing what I've basically already been doing and defining it more clearly. The things I've been slacking on: Only doing glutes/abs 1x week and I have been shortening my cardio lately. 

 

4. Get Shit Done

 

Same as last challenge. Write down 3 work goals at the start of the day, things I've been putting off. Do the work goals!!!! 

 

I also need to plan my garden, but that's probably going to need to happen regardless...

I should do a vegetable goal..... you and Emerald with your vegetable shenanigans.

 

I did a 'fruit or vegetable with every meal' challenge, and it was pretty successful.

Today is peas and onions, in some homemade indian food. I know peas are a legume, but I give them a pass to be included in my veggies. 

+1

If I do a veggie thing again, I'm totally counting legumes.

The dietitian is asking me to replace some of my meat protein with vegetarian protein because reasons, so legume consumption is going to have to go up. Might need a legume challenge in May. I can hear the bean jokes now.

That is something I should do as well...  (And also learn how to type under the quote. Sometimes, like now, I just can't get it to work...)

Hi, I'm here. 

 

Those trying to get protein from veggies might be called health-conscious, but I like to call them fart-lovers. 

Or gladiators. They used to eat all of them in those days instead of meat. Well, they didn´t have that Spartacus-KingLeonidas-CokeLightMan-look we love, they we´re more muscular-fat. Belly-fat protects from too deep cuts, you know...

Speaking of this. TMI. One of my doctors has basically prescribed me a colon cleanse. So workouts this week are going to be minimal. I'm not allowed to eat on Friday and Saturday. So I'm unsure of my workouts on Friday/Sunday. I'm going to aim for 3 workouts instead of the usual 4. I missed my workout yesterday due to said colon reasons. My plan is today (Wednesday 1), Thursday 2, and Sunday 3 for workouts. I may not have the energy on Sunday. Also, I have to work late today and tomorrow. 

 

Basically zero week is gonna be the week in which I zero out my gut?

Colon cleanse. Urm, best of luck?

 

Spoiler

 

It's the colonoscopy prep without the colonoscopy part. His words "you get the worst part and it doesn't end in getting the good sedation drugs". 

 

In February I had (to me) sudden onset of constipation. He wants to see if this corrects it. If it doesn't that I get the fun invasive tests.

Oh man. THAT colon cleanse???

Honey, you have all my sympathy. I turned 50 last summer so had my first ever colonoscopy. It wasn't horrid but the next day I just slept all day. From then on, I was like, "bring on the fiber, baybay!"

I hope this helps correct the issue for you!
